Happy 80th Birthday to One of the Greatest Ballplayers Ever – Bob Gibson

Gibson-Cardinals

17 years, all with the Cardinals. 251 wins. Won 20 games or more five times. A 2.91 lifetime ERA, with the incredible 1968 season, where his ERA was 1.12. 3,117 strikeouts (and 102 hit batsmen). Two Cy Youngs. An MVP. Twice won World Series MVP. A great, great competitor.

Read about him in David Halberstam’s “October 1964.”

Later,
